      Just raise the flop and go broke if he wants to. If he has Kx he's not going anywhere, and there are quite of bunch of possible OESDs/gutshots on that board, we're not thrilled to see any card higher than a 6 on the turn really, and it's more likely he'll put money in with draws when he still has a chance to hit them on the turn and the river, as opposed to only on the river if we wait until the turn to make a value raise. If he just calls the flop raise, bomb any turn and call it off.

      When you have a big hand on a board where you're likely to get action, you want to put yourself in a position to win your opponent's stack, not just a good chunk of it.

      Hope it helps.
